Tesla Camper Wants to be Fastest RV in the World - Tesla is known for its electric cars, but now the company is branching off into campers with its Tesla Model S-based motorhome prototype. Creator Travis Rabenberg wants the motorhome to reach a top speed of 150 mph and have a range of 200 miles. Rabenberg’s goal is to break the Guinness World Land Speed Record for an electric motorhome. This camper looks pretty wild but will include some basic comforts of home like a toilet, sink, bed, water storage, and 350 watts of roof-mounted solar. Read More.

This App-Controlled Camper Can Haul a Smart Car -
Last month at RVX, Chinook Motor Coach debuted their new Trail Wagon. This new model is a mix between a toy hauler and a camping trailer. The camper is app-controlled and can fit a smart car inside. The trailer was made to haul extra gear and provide sleeping space, with a queen bed that converts into a couch when not in use. By downloading an app on your smartphone you can easily control the unit. With the touch of a finger, you can drop the ramp door, control the TV, and lift and lower the bed. There will be two Trail Wagons available - one with a square front and another with a rounded front. Pricing will begin at $38,000. Read More.

Winnebago’s New Camper Van is Here - Winnebago also had their time to shine at RVX with the reveal of their new Class B camper van called the Boldt. This new, four-season coach was inspired by German explorer Alexander Von Humboldt. The Boldt is built on a 24-foot Mercedes-Benz chassis and has a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine. The two floorplans are called the 70KL and the 70BL - both including a sleeping area, a galley kitchen, and a dining area. The Boldt also gives travelers flexibility with their flex bed system that can convert the bedroom or living area spaces into different configurations. The MSRP will be close to $185,000, and should be available this summer. We are excited to see these out on the road and try one out for ourselves! Read More.
